Causes of Cracked Heels

Cracked SkinCracked Heels are a common problem of hard-working feet, especially when the weather gets cooler.

The causes of cracked heels we will discuss further but basically cracked heels or feet arise when the skin on the feet lacks moisture becomes dry and splits open. This creates painful cracks called fissures which are very painful.

What are the causes of cracked heels?

Cracked Heels are caused because although the skin on the feet is harder and tougher than any other skin on our body it is very sensitive. Ladies who wear open backed high heels that do a lot of walking often have the problem of dehydrated skin on the feet and are in danger of cracked heels and feet if their feet are not looked after.

Extreme pressure or long periods of standing can be enough to cause cracked heels especially if the skin is already very dry or dehydrated as the skin cannot stretch comfortably and the skin will then crack.

Cracked Heel Symptoms

You may begin to see red of flaky patches of skin to begin with, which your warning sign that your feet are not getting enough attention. You do not look after your feet at this stage the skin will soon start to peel and crack. Now you really have to start a skincare routine on your feet, do not be tempted to pick and peel the skin as this will damage it further and can cause infection. If you have any bleeding or discharge from the cracks this is when it really starts to get painful and you might be finding it difficult to walk. These cracks have now gone to the lower layers of skin and are at high risk of infection.

Cracked skin does not only appear on the feet, it can appear anywhere on the body that is under constant pressure and has lack of attention from our skin care routine. This is why the feet are often overlooked.
